The family that just decided to make the complaint public, said that the subjects arrived in a kayak or paddle board because they were wet at the time of committing the robbery. 

After being approached by the assailants, the boat owners were threatened to be thrown overboard, while the criminals got busy looting the ship, and then fled the scene. Fortunately, there were no injuries during the robbery.

Finally, after several minutes of anguish, despair, and fear, the Punta Nizuc pirates fled aboard the boat to an unknown destination, without injuring any of their victims.
